We know. Here at Redeemed Decor, we could talk about paint all day every day. If we’re talking Fusion Mineral’s line of paints, we could go on for days. There’s a world of possibilities when you bring furniture and Fusion Mineral together. 

When the two collide, there’s magic. And that’s why we’ve made such a big point of highlighting each and every Fusion Mineral Paint color option.

But enough of that. Now that you know why we make it a point to talk about Fusion Mineral, let’s get talking about today’s color.

And that is (drum roll, please) … Fusion Mineral Paint Linen.

Neutral is beautiful

So let’s talk about this warm neutral gray with hints of brown. Fusion Mineral Linen carries a sense of stature and grounding with its cozy hue. 

It’s one of several wonderful paint colors from the Penney Co. collection of Fusion Mineral paints. The collection is named after and pulled together by Michael Penney.

To say that Penney knows about color is an understatement. His talent for decoration and style is well known. Former editor of House & Home Magazine and Style at Home Magazine, Penney brings a level of quality and expertise into the Penney Co. line.

In using Fusion Mineral Paint Linen, you know that you’re using a quality paint crafted with care. As it should be. It’s your home. And your home merits quality.

Different ways to use Linen

So let’s see Fusion Mineral Paint Linen in action. These examples will serve as inspiration for your next project. Take what you see and feel free to give it your own spin. 

There’s only one you — let your personality shine through your DIY project. 

Small chest makeover

In this example, the blogger snagged a small Birdseye Maple chest from a local online yard sale. The chest came at a bargain. The orange-like surface, while in good condition, needed to go. So that’s where Fusion Mineral Linen stepped in.

And what a transformation that led to! The chest went from drab to fab with a coat of Linen!

French dresser

According to the So Much Better With Age blog, love and paint were the key ingredients to this furniture transformation. This ugly bird dresser turned into a French beauty. And after Fusion, you wouldn’t believe it was the same nicked up and ugly dresser in the before picture!

Watercolor ombre dresser

Here’s a unique idea for your dresser. This ombre look isn’t achieved by ease although it’s not overly complicated. You’ll need to mix up Fusion Mineral Paint Linen with Fusion’s Seaside.

Color palettes using Fusion Mineral Paint Linen

Now let’s see how Fusion Mineral Paint Linen plays with other colors. These color palettes are sure eye-pleasers!

As you peruse the following palettes, keep in mind that there are other options for colors that pair well with Linen. But an exhaustive palette library is beyond the scope of our article. 

Scenic whimsy

Look at that warm gray-brown shine with the pops of green. And it’s not just green — it’s light green and dark green — and other shades in between. Give your home a whimsy woodland feel with this palette. Browns and other neutral colors sit well with this color.

Autumn harvest

In this palette, we see various browns and neutrals taking up most of the stage. Rich orange-browns also have their place here. Some light green provides a subtle accent in this earthy range of colors.

Rustic strength

As we consider this palette, we can’t help but think Fusion Mineral Paint Linen would carry well with a distressed, shabby chic look. Bring in those wood palettes and the twine laden decor. 

But we digress. Colors in this palette include bluish gray, rustic brownish oranges, and creamy neutrals.

Linen isn’t just for the closet

Of course, you could paint the closet with this warm color. But who says Linen is just for the closet!

Fusion Mineral Paint Linen will give your home an air of nobility or rustic vintage — it’s all about how you use it. 

If you like warm grays like Linen, see what you think about Fusion Mineral Paint Soapstone. Soapstone takes gray a bit further in its depth. It’s bolder and with a hint of purple or blue. Take a look and see what you think.
